With all eyes on Model 3 production numbers ahead of Tesla’s third quarter earnings report thatÂ’s scheduled to be released on November 1, CEO Elon Musk is seemingly in celebration as he camps on the rooftop of the Gigafactory.

Musk took to Twitter in the predawn hours of Thursday morning to share an Instagram photo of a “Campfire on the Gigafactory roof”. Garbed in his usual dark sports coat that covers a matching crewneck tee, Musk cheers his glass of whiskey while lip-synching to the lyrics of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” that’s heard playing in the background.

“Whiskey, fire, s’mores and JC” reads the caption to Musk’s Instagram video posted at nearly 3 a.m. in the morning.

Are we seeing first signs that Tesla is about to shock Wall Street on November 1 with better than expected results?

The usual high-flying Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) stock has seen a drop of roughly 4.5% in October after the company announced that it had produced 260 Model 3s and delivered 220 units in the third quarter – far from Musk’s original guidance of 1,500 Model 3s produced by September.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Tesla has secured a deal with ChinaÂ’s government that would allow the company to

Though analysts’ estimates for Tesla’s third quarter revenues suggest that there will be a positive trend in the quarters ahead, Tesla’s gross margin will likely suffer due to costs related to infrastructure development and production ramp. Musk’s goals to produce 500,000 vehicles in 2018 while simultaneously launching a diverse mix of new products seems to be ambitious at this point.
